5. Psalm 127:3-5 (MSG)
Slide 5 of 5
This passage reminds us what a gift children are. Pregnancy is a long process with ups and downs, but these verses are grounding.
This is a wonderful passage to read and meditate on during times when being pregnant just feels hard and heavy. The aches and pains, the worry, all the preparing--it will all be worth it when you experience the blessing of meeting your baby.
Don’t you see that children are God’s best gift?
the fruit of the womb his generous legacy?
Like a warrior’s fistful of arrows
are the children of a vigorous youth.
Oh, how blessed are you parents,
with your quivers full of children!
Whether you just received a positive pregnancy test or you are nearing the end of your pregnancy journey or are anywhere in between, I hope these Scripture passages will encourage you.
The Lord knows and loves you and your little one intimately, and he is with you on this journey of pregnancy, birth, and parenthood.
Babies come to us in different ways--some women have children very young, while some pray for years to become a mother, and yet still others are able to have children through the aid of modern technologies or through the adoption process.
Whatever your story of pregnancy and the journey to motherhood, know that God sees you and desires you to draw closer to him through this time.
What Scripture passages have encouraged you during pregnancy? What verses do you like to pray over your baby?
